A native of Springfield, Massachusetts, D’Agostino now resides with his wife Taia and son Sonni Giuseppe in Winthrop.
Francisco D’Agostino joined Boston College after serving as assistant coach at Harvard men’s soccer until November 2020 and Interim Head Coach until January 2020. D’Agostino played collegiately for James Madison University. After playing for the Top 25 Dukes, D’Agostino continued his playing career at the semi-pro level in Italy with Molfetta Sportiva, Melphicta Calcio, and Virtus Bitritto.
In 2014, Francisco D’Agostino moved from playing to coaching and was hired as an assistant for the UMass Lowell men’s soccer program alongside Bob Thompson. In the River Hawks transition to Division 1 in 2016, D’Agostino helped guide men’s soccer team to its best finish in program history with a 13-1-2 record.
The UMass Lowell men’s soccer team went on to capture its first America East Regular Season Championship in school and program history and the coaching staff earned the America East Coaching Staff of the Year as well as the NSCAA East Region Coaching Staff of the Year honors.
Always looking forward, D’Agostino became the Head Coach of UMass Lowell women’s soccer team, leading the program to its best finish since joining Division I in 2013. Although D’Agostino joined Harvard, the River Hawks continued on the path of success that D’Agostino put in motion and made it to an America East Conference final for the first time in history that same fall season.
